“THINK THIS, NOT THAT – Empowering the Most Vulnerable in Our Society” | Chet Sisk
TITLE: “THINK THIS, NOT THAT – Empowering the Most Vulnerable in Our Society”
SPECIAL GUEST: Chet Sisk
Think This, Not That, Empowering the Most Vulnerable in Our Society is about the dynamics of change from the inside out. Joining Allen is former advertising company executive and journalist Chet W. Sisk, a man who left what many would consider to be a life of corporate success to spent the last 11 years as a volunteer Life Skills instructor.
10,000 students later he came to the undeniable conclusion that what we call “conventional wisdom” in our society keeps a lot of people in endless cycles of mediocrity and living lifeless, frustration-filled lives. In this book, Chet dismantles many of those sayings (ie: you can’t have everything, whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, etc.) and gives them a 21st century update.
Using the backdrop of how the updates worked in the lives of his students, Chet gives clear, straight forward advice, backed with data, on our new collective wisdom and how it will change our lives and our world, for the better as well as open the door to greater possibilities.
